Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine and Donegal TD, Charlie McConalogue, was joined by his colleague Minister of State for Sport Jack Chambers TD and Cllr Paul Canning to meet with Naomh Colmcille CLG, Newtowncunningham, and to see the ongoing development of their grounds.


The club received €50,000 under the record breaking allocation of €5.64m to Donegal sports clubs in the Sports Capital allocation 2022. The funds will go towards improving the club’s grounds and facilities.


Commenting, Minister McConalogue said “I was delighted to bring Minister Chambers to the club to meet some club members and to see the great work already ongoing for enhancements to the club grounds and facilities. The plans for the grounds are community-focused and I commend the cathaoirleach Priscilla Dolan, the board and club members for the work they do for Newtowncunningham. We were joined by Senator Niall Blaney and local councillor Paul Canning.”
